Hair-Crossed Bun | Updo Hairstyles

I continue to get quite a few requests for Updo Hairstyles, for all the homecoming dances this Fall, so here is another very elegant-looking bun style that is perfect for occasions such as prom, homecoming, dance/ballet recitals, weddings, etc.

Hair-Crossed Bun

What is different about this bun style is that you wrap strands of the the half ponytail around the other half, each strand wrapped in the opposite direction. You end up with a cross-over “wrapped” bun look that is absolutely gorgeous.

This bun hairstyle is one that my #2 twin wore in our “Family Introduction” video, and can be for girls of all ages (including moms). You may also feel free to accessorize the hairstyle as desired…

Items Needed: Spray bottle, rat-tail comb, straightener, 2 ponytail holders, hairspray, 10 +/- bobby pins.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

If you like this bun hairstyle, be sure to let us know!  Happy Hairdoing!

    I LOVE your website! I was wondering if you had any hair styles (VERY GIRLY)for a ten year-old. Thanks.

  • Nyree

    With 5 daughters 10 and under, I sure appreciate your ideas for the past few years! Thanks so much. Doing 6 heads of hair every day (including myself) can wear on me a bit at times. When I have those days your ideas make it so much more fun! Thanks so much! (I always wonder if you’ll spot us in a store and see all 4 of my older girls and see your ideas on every one!! LOL)
